About this apartment

Due to Coronavirus concerns, we have postponed our "eco-friendly" cleaning habits and are temporarily adopting stringent anti-viral cleaning protocols.

The place will also be fully stocked with paper towels, toilet paper, hand soap and coffee.

Between reservations, all surfaces including floors will be professionally deep cleaned with paper towels (not cloth) and our bacteria-eliminating floor steam cleaner, Lysol 99.9% surface cleaner and Lysol spray, as well as a light-bleach sanitizing solution. Bedding and linens will be washed with organic laundry detergent as well as a small amount of bleach for safety purposes.

Although we are aware of the possible effects on our chemically sensitive guests by using these products, we feel that creating the most sanitary environment possible is currently of incredible importance.

All Plates, glasses, and silverware as well as other kitchenware will be removed and run through the dishwasher on the hottest cycle, even if unused.

8 Min Drive to Philadelphia Convention Center

Guest Access:
Due to the recent influx of parties at short term rental units during the corona virus outbreak, we have installed Noiseaware sound monitors in this unit. These monitors do not record any sound in the unit, but rather monitor for spikes in decibel levels and send notifications to our 2 managers when this happens. Please also note that the 2 managers live very close by, so if you need anything at all we are not far away.

You’ll have full access to this unique unit during your stay. Our six-unit building features a front desk that’s staffed from 9-5 on weekends. This is perfect if you have any questions about the neighborhood or are expecting any packages.

Enjoy the view from our top floor apartment. But do keep in mind, accessing our fourth floor requires three flights of stairs.

KEY FEATURES:
1 bedroom with queen size bed
1 en suite bathroom
Beautiful kitchen area with convenient bar seating, cookware, utensils, etc.
Modern lounge with custom swing
Memory foam mattress topper for chic pull out sofa
Wifi available in unit
Two gorgeous custom reclaimed wood window seats
Complimentary bottle of white wine to celebrate your arrival
Unique, classy safari decor

Interaction with Guests:
We are here for you during your stay, but our level of interaction is up to you. We’re only a message or phone call away. You will be able to self check-in upon arrival.”

“The best way to get a hold of me would be through text. I will also be responsive to messages on Airbnb. I usually don’t answer unknown phone numbers, so calling might not work. If you would like to
talk on the phone, however, I would be more than happy to call you whenever you want - just let me know through a text message or an Airbnb message!

The Neighborhood:
Located in an incredible location within Rittenhouse, 1 block from the beautiful Rittenhouse Park. Rittenhouse Square is the most popular and centrally located neighborhood in all of Philadelphia. Rittenhouse Square itself is culturally diverse, safe and full of trendy and excellent restaurants/bars - all within a 10 minute walk or less!

Getting Around:
Walking is by far the best way to get around in our neighborhood. Street parking is limited to 2-3 hours, but the closest overnight parking option is 3 minutes away at 125 S 20th Street.

Other Things to Note:
Please remember that you are staying in a house, not a hotel. We ask you to always remember to treat the space with respect and abide by our house rules. We have a strict security deposit of $250 and if you do break any of our rules, we will, unfortunately, be forced to keep the full amount. Lastly, the swing is for decorative purposes only. Although it is mounted securely in the ceiling, Birdnest can not be held liable of any accident that may occur. Swing at your own risk.
